New Tesla Model 3, a lot of glass on this car. No sealants or glass prep has been done yet. Tesla says don't use rain-x on the windshield because of possible chatter (I wouldn't use Rain-X ever) but was looking to seal/protect the glass all around (including the windshield) Trying to make sense of the options from Adams: ADAM'S NEW CLEAR VISION GLASS KIT Adam's Tough Glass Towels Adam's Clay Mitt Adam's Aerosol Glass Cleaner Adam's 8oz Glass Boost ADAM'S WINDSHIELD PROTECTION KIT Glass Cleaner 16oz Glass Boost 8oz Microfiber Glass Cleaning Towels (2) Visco Clay Bar Refill Packet Seems like the major differences here are the clay mitt vs the clay bar.. Then there's the ADAM'S GLASS SEALANT which seems like it should be used before the boost but after the cleaner/clay... So in my mind, the order is: Clean/clay with either the mitt or the bar Sealant Boost And probably then use the boost during regular washes? Questions are: Kit with the mitt vs the clay bar -- worth the $25 difference My order of operations seem right Is there a kit I'm not seeing that has the Cleaner/Clay/Sealant/Boost/Towels all in one Thanks, Bill
Received this in last mystery buckets - was pretty excited to check it out. Unfortunately I never found my original adams glass sealant which i loved and was using up some griots glass sealant which works great as well, just takes twice as long to apply for similar results. Well in Norcal there's a 2 day rainstorm blowing through so this morning i decided to "boost" my wife's sealed car (bout a month ago with griots) with some glass boost and since i've only had my truck a few months i hadn't yet sealed my windshield so decided to do it since my wipers were squeaky. Cleaned glass thoroughly and clayed it afterwards then spent a good 15 minutes doing 2 coats of the griots per instructions. The only non-instruction thing I did was rather than wipe it off once hazed over I misted some glass boost on top and buffed to a ?shine? Anyways - water was beading like crazy and flying off the windshield around 30mph - but literally less than 5 minutes later and probably 5 wiper swipes in they wipers were squeaking again and low and behold, the glass is no longer sealed. My wife also reported her wipers were squeaking a little today too. I'm guessing that maybe the glass boost doesn't play nice w/ the griots variety (no matter, my replacement Adam's one is coming Tuesday), but I'm not really sure - anyone else have any experience using glass boost w/ a non Adams glass sealant? Does the humidity play a factor in not letting it seal properly? The only difference between when the stuff i have worked great and today was the addition of the glass boost and less time before water touched the windshield. I will say during the final buffing off of the sealant and boost that the windshield was suuuuuper slick. Anyways - not sure if anyone can answer the humidity with glass sealant question or glass boost with other sealant question but wanted to throw this out there. I'm going to re-coat tonight after work w/o using the boost and see if it's the humidity or the boost - will update with results later.
